Decent apartment for the location
Pros: Great location to GWU VSTC, lots of sunlight, very quiet, within walking distance to Bles park and trails, small but adequate gym, 2 pools, responsive management, free parking, valet trash pickup.
Cons: Temperature control issues (poorly insulated), appliances not updated, carpet, streetlights at night are very bright which can be bothersome when trying to sleep.
Prompt maintenance service, clean community
Couldn't be happier so far! Nice management, convenient location, and reasonably priced apartments. Great option for GW Nursing students!
-Great to be so close to school
-Far from DC and fun activities
-Management is unresponsive to complaints
-No one picks up their dog poop
-Thin walls, but neighbors aren't too noisy
-They allow smoking so if your neighbors smoke, you will smell it. HUGE problem for us.
-Two nice pools, but one will be closed for a year for renovations
-Requests for maintenance issues are responded to in a reasonable time
-Stairways to apartments feel like they will crumble and you will die walking up them
-Average space in the one bedroom apartments. Average upkeep.
Close to Ashburn Campus
Stone ridge is within walking distance to campus. on a nice day the walk home after class is refreshing.
The apartments themselves are nice, many are updated, and the complex is huge. there are 2 pools and a work out center on site as well. The staff is overall responsive to service request., and rent is reasonable. they even do a 15 month lease, and GW students get a discount. Loudon One is only 1.5 miles away, so bars and restaurants are close as well.
I recommend living here, for the 1st year, at least.
Close to VA campus
Management is very friendly and responsive. Laundry in apartment, spacious bedrooms with huge windows. Fireplace in living room. Access to a small gym and two pools included with rent. Great deal for the price.
Great apartment option!
This apartment complex has bad reviews online (Yelp/google) but I've had nothing short of a great experience living in Stoneridge! They switched management companies in Summer, 2016 and are in the process of renovating all of the units (granite/stainless, etc!). Unfortunately, this means that you won't find an apartment at the same price we paid (A 3 bed/2 bath starts at $2200 now) Utilities aren't included but are about $100/month/person. Parking is free and it's not difficult to find a spot right outside your apartment. They also have valet trash that picks up trash right outside of your door every night! It is right next to campus and there are beautiful walking trails behind the complex along the Potomac River.
Not unless you're desperate
This is a great place to live due to its proximity to GWU's nursing school. Honestly, that's about it. The office staff are rude except for one guy who senses when his coworkers are being unnecessarily short with people and tries to compensate by being even nicer. You can tell he's really trying to counteract. If you move in on a Friday, try to start your utilities before you start to unload your vehicle. Otherwise, you'll catch a $50 fine for not immediately changing utilities over to your name. I'll warn you because the front office won't.
In January, several people with out of state license plates received tickets for not having county property tax stickers on their vehicles. When I called Loudon County treasurer's office, I was told that I was given a warning back in September. Other people were given warnings as well. The problem is, nobody received a physical warning. No windshield ticket. No contact with Loudon County Sheriff's office. The identifying information for our vehicles was taken down and a warning was placed in the system, but there was no notification whatsoever. For context, all of the ticket recipients are from out of state and the so-called warnings were issued within two weeks of moving in. I'm concerned that the front office is tipping off the sheriff's office because the tickets and warnings coincide with move in dates and the beginning of a new semester.
As for the apartment: it takes between 6-8 minutes to get warm water (both summer and winter now) in the shower and the sink, the tiles in my bathroom have gaping holes in them (caulk was never filled back in), the maintenance guys used a crowbar to access the water heater closet and damaged the door frame, the microwave only partially heats food, and the list continues on.
The management is not great. Somewhat difficult to work with but it is so close to campus and cheap. To me, these things weighed out over the management being poor.
It's good, but watch out for the little things
We've enjoyed living at the apartment and most things go very, very well. The apartment is a great value for the price that we pay: great location, hardwood floors, and granite countertops.
I will note that there has been a small string of tire thefts in the apartment complex but the leadership has been responsive. I would highly recommend tire locks and taking precautions (keeping a clean car, etc.) if you choose to live here.
This apartment is ideal for me and my family and our lifestyle. I never feel like it is too far from anything, the location is perfect. Management has always been very prompt whenever we have communicated. Nice living space. Some neighbours are not so great though.
Close to school
3131 is close to school (takes about 10-15min).
Spacious, management was attentive to our service requests and responded promptly. Having washer/dryer included free of charge was a nice bonus. The pool and gym are on the smaller side but recently renovated. Neighbors were friendly.
Quiet location, close to Toco Hills shopping center
Good place to live. About 15-20 minutes from the business school. It's really close to the grocery store, and I-85 is about 10 minutes away (major highway). Great for pets and the management is really helpful. It is not a gated community, though, and there have been some reports of theft.
- Plenty of space
- Quiet and safe
- No gate (my preference)
- Wonderful management team
- Have apartment sprayed regularly to reduce palmetto bugs
- Could use a bit more sunlight
